On Positive thinking

On Positive thinking
Philippians 4:8King James Version (KJV)


Finally, brethren, 

whatsoever things are true, 

whatsoever things are honest, 

whatsoever things are just, 

whatsoever things are pure, 

whatsoever things are lovely, 

whatsoever things are of good report; 

if there be any virtue, 

and if there be any praise, 

think on these things.

Quitting Is Not The Way

Quitting Is Not The Way 
Poet: Julie Hebert

Go ahead and quit, if you can't see it through.
But don't come crying to me, when quitting is all you do.

Those who start to quit, when things start getting tough.
Start to see quitting, as a way to get out of stuff.

They never stick things through, and can't complete a thing.
Is this the type of person, you see yourself being? 

Quitters never win, no matter what you've heard.
Have you ever heard a quitter, that is picked to be referred?

Of course that would be silly, why would someone refer?
Someone who can't even accomplish, they are their own saboteurs.

Next time you want to quit, think who you want to be.
Quitters never win, I want more than this for thee.

I want to see success, surround you every day.
I want you to be happy, and want to scream hooray!

I want you in a job, that makes you're world so good.
I want the work you do, feel just like childhood.

But most of all I want, to see you see things through.
But not because you should, because you really want too.

And I realize you may be scared, that you can't see it through.
But I'm hear to tell you, you can, do anything you put your mind to. 

God Always Answers Prayer

God Always Answers Prayer

Rev. Robert H. Schuller  from his Book: "Positive Prayers for Power Filled Living" 


When the idea is not right, God says, "No."

No-when the idea is not the best. 
No-when the idea is absolutely wrong. 
No-when though it may help you, 
it could create problems for someone else.

When the time is not right, God says, "Slow."

What a catastrophe it would be if God answered every prayer at the snap of your fingers. Do you know what would happen? God would become your servant, not your master. Suddenly God would be working for you instead of you working for God.

Remember: God's delays are not God's denials. God's timing is perfect. Patience is what we need in prayer.

When you are not right, God says, "Grow."

The selfish person has to grow in unselfishness.
The cautious person must grow in courage. 
The timid person must grow in confidence. 
The dominating person must grow in sensitivity.
The critical person must grow in tolerance. 
The negative person must grow in positive attitudes. 
The pleasure-seeking person must grow in compassion for suffering people.

When everything is all right, God says, "Go."

Then miracles happen: 
A hopeless alcoholic is set free!
A drug addict finds release ! 
A doubter becomes as a child in his belief. 
Diseased tissue responds to treatment, and healing begins.
The door to your dream suddenly swings open and there 
stands God saying, "Go!"

Love

"Love is like magic and it always will be. For love still remains life's sweet mystery! 

Love works in ways that are wondrous and strange and there's nothing in life that love cannot change! 

Love can transform the most commonplace into beauty and splendor and sweetness and grace. 

Love is unselfish, understanding and kind, for it sees with its heart and not with its mind! 

Love is the answer that everyone seeks... Love is the language, that every heart speaks. 
Love can't be bought, it is priceless and free, love, like pure magic, is life's sweet mystery! Helen Steiner Rice 

Failure

Failure

Poet: Edgar Guest 

Failure is ceasing to try!
"Tis accepting defeat
And to all you may meet
Giving voice to a sigh;
"Tis in thinking it vain
To attempt furthermore
And in bowing to pain
When the muscles grow sore. 

Failure is stepping aside 
From the burnt of the fray
In a weak-hearted way,
Being content to abide
In the shadows that fall, 
And in being afraid
Out of life, after all, 
Nothing's left to be made. 

Failure is thinking despair, 
The forsaking of hope,
And refusal to cope
With the day's round of care,
It's in heeding the cry,
"All is lost!" and to stay 
With defeat and not try
For the happier day. 

A GROUP OF PEOPLE...

A GROUP OF PEOPLE...

A group of people, who died in the crash, were surprised to find themselves in the world that was extremely similar to ours. It contained all conveniences and various entertainments. With a bigger surprise they found out that they were in the hell.

Those who wanted an easy life got it. Those who thirsted for money gained them. All ambitions of all varieties were satisfied. There were a lot of demons that helped them to do everything they wanted.

However, one day, known as the “day of complaints,” several residents came to reception to the senior demon and said:

– We are living a wonderful life: continuous, colourful parties, various entertainments. However, we noticed that with each passing day we become more weakened and move away from each other, and quickly lose everything that is easy to get for us.

– Well, – the demon was surprised – you are in hell, aren’t you?

You Cannot Change

You Cannot Change 
by Brian Tracy

You cannot change the world, 
But you can present the world with one improved person - Yourself. 

You can go to work on yourself to make yourself
Into the kind of person you admire and respect. 
You can become a role model and set a standard for others. 
You can control and discipline yourself to resist acting
Or speaking in a negative way toward anyone for any reason. 
You can insist upon always doing things the loving way, 
Rather than the hurtful way. 
By doing these things each day, you can continue on your journey
Toward becoming an exceptional human being. 

Anyway

Anyway 
Poet: Unknown 

People are unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered.
Love them anyway!

If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway!

If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies.
Succeed anyway!

The good you do today, will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway!

Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway!

The biggest person with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest people with the smallest minds;
Think big anyway!

People favor underdogs, but follow only top dogs.
Fight for underdogs anyway!

What you spend years building up may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway!

People really need help, but will attack you if you help them.
Help them anyway!

Give the world the best you have and it may kick you in the teeth.
Give the world the best you've got anyway!

How When Where

How When Where 
Poet: John Oxenham

It is not so much WHERE you live, 
As HOW, and WHY, and WHEN you live, 
That answers in the affirmative, 
Or maybe in the negative, 
The question Are you fit to live?

It is not so much WHERE you live, 
As HOW you live, and whether good 
Flows from you through your neighborhood
. And WHY you live, and whether you 
Aim high and noblest ends pursue, 
And keep Life brimming full and true. 

And WHEN you live, and whether Time 
Is at its nadir or its prime, 
And whether you descend or climb. 
It is not so much WHERE you live, 
As whether while you live you live 
And to the world your highest give, 
And so make answer positive 
That you are truly fit to live.
